Live from Washington: #StepUp with Us Today!

stepup-9We're on Capitol Hill today for the 6th Annual Childhood Cancer Summit, followed by the Alliance for Childhood Cancer's Luncheon & Art Reception, and we are looking forward to an inspiring and impactful day of events. We'll be pressing Members of Congress for their support of the Childhood Cancer Survivorship, Treatment, Access and Research Act of 2015, and we hope you'll join us from home.

Please consider taking a moment to add your voice to the community's joint efforts by asking Congress to #StepUp and Co-Sponsor the Childhood Cancer STAR Act.

Take Action Button

If your Senators and Representative haven't heard from you yet this September, TODAY is the day to reach out. Write a letter, send a tweet, or pick up the phone. There is power in numbers!

We thank the Congressional Childhood Cancer Caucus for hosting this morning's Summit on Progress and Opportunities in the Fight against Pediatric Cancer. (LiveStream available here). We're looking forward to hearing from some great speakers, including keynote speaker Dr. Lee Helman, Acting Director of NCI's Center for Cancer Researcher. And we're pleased to have the opportunity to honor Congressional champions and educate additional Members and staff about the STAR Act at the post-Summit luncheon. Children's Cause is proud to be a Gold Ribbon sponsor of the luncheon, and we applaud our colleagues in the Alliance for working together to make it a successful event.
